16 CFR Part 456 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request Ophthalmic Practice Rule (Eyeglass Rule): FTC Project No. R511996
I'd like to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I recently tried to order glasses online and wasn't able to do so without my PD. Unfortunately, my doctor didn't provide that on my original prescription, so I had to take a time-consuming trip to a few optical shops, all of whom refused to provide me the information. I finally had to do it myself and hope I obtained an accurate number. Ultimately, the process took a full week longer than it needed to. The PD measurement should be required on all eyeglass prescriptions.
